Ryan - Development Coach, Step Up Latrobe Valley

Ryan became part of the Step Up Latrobe Valley team early in 2021. After a decade working as an integration aide in primary schools Ryan decided to make the move to start supporting young people at the other end of their education journey.

Ryan has spent a lot of his life helping young people achieve their goals and bettering themselves. Volunteering for youth programs run by The Salvation Army, Ryan was able to develop this passion and a wide range of skills that come in handy at Ladder.

Ryan’s favourite memory of his time at Ladder so far has been the end-of-program visit to Werribee Zoo. It was a great way to have fun, participate in team building activities, and reflect on the program and the great steps the young people made during their time at Step Up Latrobe Valley.

Ryan is looking forward to many more programs with Ladder, and the opportunity he will have to help the young people of Latrobe Valley identify, work towards, and achieve their goals.
